Make a holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn, France your home away from home

Tarn, a mountainous department of south west France, is situated in the Midi-Pyrenees province. Tarn is a glorious region of rural France, where the pace of life is leisurely, the culture is strong and the scenery is green and peaceful, broken only by fortified medieval towns and impressive fairytale Tarn chateaux. Holiday rental chateaus in Tarn are perfect for family holiday, extended family reunions and special occasions due to their size, space and grandeur, all at hugely good value.

Things to do on holiday in Tarn, France

As I mentioned, Tarn has a rich, traditional culture. The museums of Albi give a great insight into the history of the department, including the famous Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, dedicated to the local artist. The engineering miracle of the Millau Bridge which straddles the Tarn Gorge makes essential viewing from a Tarn gite, especially if you have hired a car to drive hundreds of metres above the ground.

The river which carved the huge Aveyron Gorge is a mecca for white water rafting and canoeing, with some of the best and most challenging stretches starting in the St Antonin area, which is a great place to take a Tarn gite or chateau if you intend to take to the river. Horse riding in Tarn is hugely popular too, with the open expanses of green open spaces lending themselves to both single day rides and long riding holidays. The mountain biking and walking in Tarn is also top class, with many marked trails across some of the most beautiful scenery to be found in the area.

There are some great golf courses in Tarn too. The course of Chateau Lasbordes in Albi is a particularly good course, but there are many excellent rounds to be had all across the department, so you will undoubtedly be able to find a good course in close proximity to your holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn.

Places to holiday in Tarn, France

Cordes-sur-Ciel is probably the most magnificent fortified bastide towns, set proudly on a hilltop in the Tarn countryside. The huge, domineering chateau which dominates the skyline offers sweeping panoramic views across the department, and is a perfect place to start getting a feel for the department’s rich heritage and culture when you first arrive at your holiday rental in Tarn.

Wine connoisseurs who have taken a self catering property in Tarn must visit Gaillac, the village at the centre of the Tarn’s wine trade, and the local markets in most villages sell delicious local produce, especially the large bustling market at St Antonin.

Weather in Tarn, France

We visited Albi and Lautrec, and also did a walk around Hautpoul. The village shop is an easy 10 minutes walk away, fresh bread and croissants for breakfast are a must. Joan is a wonderful host, making us feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

It's next to the river. 2. There is a boat. As we were going in October there was an undercover terrace and wood burning stove so it ticked my boxes. On arrival we realised it ticked all possible boxes. The chalet has been in the family for decades and has just been beautifully and lovingly restored to a high standard whilst retaining the charm of the original building. The open plan living room kitchen has windows all round, overlooks the river, so light and spacious . The bedroom is airy and snug. The bathroom has a double shower and large sink. The decor is tasteful and stylish and there is everything you need for modern living (nespresso machine, juicer, wifi, more crockery and cutlery you can shake a big stick at, lovely shower, DVD, TV, huge gas BBQ on the terrace). And a boat. There is a welcome pack of bread, butter, local fruit juice, marmalade, coffee which is great until you have time to shop the next day. It is so calm and peaceful. The river, wide and slow running adds to total switch off. There are loungers, chairs on the pontoon and a beautiful covered terrace overlooking the river for eating. Eliane and Phillipe were so welcoming and friendly, very thorough in explaining everything in the chalet and surrounding area. We felt very honoured as the first English to stay! Philippe was very helpful showing us how to use the boat (there is an extra charge for this but worth it for evening meandering up the river at sunset). The local town of Marssac (3 mins drive) has 4 boulangeries, great local wine shop with very helpful owner, spar, great hairdressers (ask for Annie!) and a basic market on a Friday morning (cheese, bread, fruit and veg, fresh fish, butcher). The chalet is perfectly situated to see all the local sites, Albi, Cours sur Ciel, Gaillac, Lisle sur Tarn, Puycelsi are all less than half an hour away and filled our week when we finally managed to drag ourselves away (and get him off the boat!). Toulouse is less than an hour away. We would have no hesitation to come back again for a recharge (and the boat). The area is stunning and the chalet makes it all a perfect package. And did I mention the boat......?!
